Non-destructive testing services

  • 14-Oct-2009 01:49 EDT

Chêne SA, a provider of non-destructive testing (NDT) services in Europe for more than 20 years, is expanding its reach into the U.S. and Canada. Chêne SA focuses on machining artificial defects on metal pieces, which are then used as reference standard models for NDT. Such testing using ultrasonics, Eddy currents, or other methods is carried out using highly precise electrical discharge machining. The company is able to produce notches as narrow as 0.0008 in and holes with a diameter as small as 0.0008 in on a variety of metal pieces. Chêne SA recently established an office in Montreal, as well as a local branch, Chêne Canada Inc.
